Following the success of the Biological Psychiatry Congress in 2015, the Organising Committee is very pleased to announce this year’s meeting, to be hosted in the fairest Cape, with the theme of “Risk and Resilience in Mental Health: Improving Life Through Science”.
We believe that the Lord Charles Somerset Hotel is the ideal setting to converge local and international clinical, research and teaching expertise, relating to neurobiological, genomic, cognitive and social science advances in the risk and resilience fields. For delegates from afar, you will be spoilt for choice in this city with its beautiful geographical and cultural landscape that boasts stunning beaches, mountains, vineyards, and much more.
The multidimensional nature of both risk and resilience and the heterogeneous way in which these concepts are conceptualized, assessed, and interpreted have hampered the translation of research findings into improving clinical outcomes. It is clear that what we need are newer and more robust ways of understanding psychopathology, protection of risk, and prevention of the range of psychiatric disorders that form the bread-and-butter of clinical practice. Risk and resilience models, in the context of adversity, may offer a more direct and novel approach to drug discovery, psychotherapy interventions, and preventive public health strategies for mood and anxiety disorders, and schizophrenia, among others.
